Congrats to Pam, last week's contest winner--and now on to the links:

Over at Chasing Ray, there's been loads of great entries like this one about the less-often mentioned business end of writing things, like what happens if one or both of the chains don't carry you, how/why libraries purchase books, etc.

And more, again from Chasing Ray---is it better to be a lucky writer, or a stubborn one?, is dealing with publishing harder than writing?, and finally, what if your book, when it's published, doesn't sell?

Be sure to check out the comments on all the blog posts above--lots of fascinating discussion, as well as some very candid information offered up by YA authors.

I'm surprised it took PW this long to write an article about this: romance authors writing YA (and okay, is it just me, or is everyone writing YA these days?)

Over at Writer Unboxed, the month of December is going to be devoted to answering reader questions about writing, agents, publishing--in short, everything! I think Writer Unboxed has some of the best and most insightful posts about the industry around, so if you have a question, now is definitely the time to strike

Very interesting post about Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility (or at least, Ang Lee's movie versions of it) over at Murderati

Allison Brennan on e-books, print books and readers--"I honestly don’t care how readers read my books. If they enjoy them electronically or in print or listening to them on tape or download. Truly, my job is to entertain by telling a good story."
